“Fine Balance of Friendliness and Professionalism”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

My highest recommendation for location in Geneva. Surely the most beautiful historic strip of interesting houses to be found. Wonderful view of the lake in the middle distance and beautifully appointed. However, I would particularly commend the fine balance of friendliness and professionalism on the part of the hosts Jennifer and Diana.

Room Tip: All rooms are great - but quite different in size and cost. The web description and pictures are ac...

This was our first stay at a B&B and words can't describe how much we enjoyed it. The house was lovely, food outstanding and hospitality unmatched. The owners are so fun and friendly and really made you feel at home. They had great recommendations for restaurants, activities etc. and are within walking distance to many great restaurants. The common areas were very inviting and there is a lovely porch with an outstanding view. Our room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed and then some. We stayed in The Betty, which has a gorgeous view of the lake. We can't wait to go back!

My wife and I stayed for 3 days in Sept 2013. We have stayed at several B&BS across the country, but Bragdon House is tops. The house is an old Victorian, 2 blocks walk from excellent downtown restaurants. It has a large porch overlooking the lake and the breakfasts are a pleasure and of gourmet quality. Jennifer and her family are enthusiastic finger lake natives and are very knowledgeable about the area and all it has to offer. Bragdon House stands out! We will be back.

Our first time at a B&B and we couldn't have picked a better place. Located on Lake Seneca and just a minute's walk to town where you can find some quaint shops and nice restaurants. Diana, the owner, was so personable and made you feel right at home. The breakfasts she created were truly out of this world. You can't go wrong if you stay here. And she is happy to help you with your choice of wineries and places to see. We would definitely go back and stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the house have a great view of the lake.

My husband and I just got back from a trip to Niagara and the Finger Lakes, and Bragdon House was the highlight of our trip! We started off with the 6 hour wine tour, which was guided/driven by Diana. She is the type of person you instantly feel comfortable with (so is her daughter, Jennifer!). She tailored the tour to meet our tastes, and was very knowledgable about the wineries and the area in general. She gave us many tasting/discount coupons, which was much appreciated. We chatted and got to know each other between wineries, and by the end, I truly feel like she was an old friend. The personalization of the wine tour was great--I would definitely recommend it! Now for the house! We were warmly greeted by Jennifer, who has the same infectious positivity and genuine kindness that Di does. She gave us a tour of the house, showed us our room, and chatted with us on the beautiful veranda overlooking Seneca Lake. We stayed in the Betty, which we found to be spacious, immaculate, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. We had a perfect view of the lake right from the bed! Breakfast was phenomenal, and Jen made sure to ask us about allergies, preferences, and gave us options! The entire experience was wonderful, and we will certainly be back. The room/breakfast could stand alone with an excellent review, but add two wonderful owners to the mix, and it is THAT much better!

My husband and I visited the Finger Lakes for the first time this past weekend. It was also my husband's first time at a Bed and Breakfast. Needless to say he was very skeptical. When we first arrived at the Bragdon House I was impressed before even entering our room. The location was perfect and the house was breathtaking...inside and out! Things only got better from there! Our room was beautiful and spotless. We staying in Mr. Hoskin's Suite which is the only room on the first floor. I wasn't sure how private it would be, but it was great. Once we were in our room, it felt like we no one else was around. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed was so comfortable. Breakfast was delicious on both mornings. We met some great people, and even stayed up one night on the sunporch talking with another couple. The Bragdon House is also walking distance to the downtown area which was convenient. Jennifer and her mother, who are the owners of the bed and breakfast couldn't have made us feel more at home. They were also very helpful with suggestions. My husband really had a great time, and we both can't wait to visit again!

We only had one night at the Bragdon House B & B but we would have loved to stay longer. The property is immaculate and tastefully restored. Our room and bathroom where spacious and comfortable and there were soft bathrobes in the closet. Jen is an amazing host, helpful and very cheery. Our room was very pretty, artfully decorated and welcoming. There are other equally pleasant common areas to sit and relax and enjoy the view of the lake. There are plently of places to eat in Geneva within easy walking distance of Bragdon House, sample menus are thoughtfully added to the guest information book in each room. Much to my delight there are resident cats and a dog.

Room Tip: We will opt for the "Di Suite" next time, it looked spectacular.
